The Reform Temple of Forest Hills

Worldwide Efforts

In addition to our many local efforts, the Social Action Team hopes to educate and inspire our Temple community to support individuals in need across the U.S. and countries around the globe.

More than 200 days since Hamas’ brutal attack on October 7, nearly 130 hostages still remain in captivity in Gaza. Join with the Reform Movement to demand that the U.S. do all it can until every single hostage is home with their loved ones. Take Action and send a message to Secretary Blinken: Support Continued U.S. Leadership Toward Successful Release of the Hostages.

Help fulfill one of the most important Jewish imperatives— to free the captive: pidyon shvu’im. Please share the link with friends and family. #BringThemHomeNow

Spearheaded by our Israel Support and Awareness Committee, our congregation raises funds for The Shiloni Project, an Israeli grassroots organization which provides urgently needed physical and emotional assistance to IDF troops and evacuated families.  To make a donation through RTFH which will be forwarded to the organization, please visit here.

Ukraine still needs financial support and our advocacy efforts. We’ve identified ways you can help.

  • Consider calling or writing your Congressional representatives or Senators to encourage their continued commitment to Ukraine.
  • Make a donation to: RAZOM, a NY based nonprofit supporting Ukraine; UNITED 24, a charity launched by President Zelensky which enables you to select the direction of your donation to these critical areas— defense, demining, medical aid, rebuilding Ukraine, and education & science; or one of many charities helping Jews in Ukraine.
